Oh how Lollapalooza has grown! It’s amazing how a farewell show for Jane’s Addiction could manifest into a growing mass of 115+ acres of multiple stages showcasing 130-something artists, festival grounds filled with farmers markets, hosting local gourmet fair, and enough arts and crafts to make your head spin!
In case you have been living under a rock these days the rumor of Eminem playing this year’s Lollapalooza is soooo true! Eminem will be one of the main acts headlining Lollapalooza! One of the summer’s biggest music festivals will set up camp in Grant Park in Chicago August 5-7th. Eminem is said to mark one of the greatest hip-hop moments in Lolla history! I know I am personally exstatic to see Slim Shady’s performance this summer!
Coldplay will be one of six headliner’s for this year’s Lollapalooza. I hear Chris Martin has outstanding stage presence. I am intrigued to see what all the hubbub is about. This summer’s lineup is…..drum roll please….Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Muse, My Morning Jacket & Deadmau5. Lollapalooza is celebrating their 20th anniversary this summer.
But enough about the headliners lets talk Girl Talk! Girl Talk will be mixing it up on “Perry’s” club-themed DJ. I have not been able to see Girl Talk live yet but have witnessed some of Gregg Gillis’ sweaty & sexy onstage photos. I am told Girl Talk puts on a raging good time and can’t wait to see what will go down!
Kid Cudi is also set to perform over on Perry’s DJ stage. Cudi is headlining alongside Girl Talk and Pretty Lights. Word on the street says Cudder is a game-changer in hip-hop, he’s even claimed to be the on the top ten most blogged about artists. I have read very mixed reviews on Cudi’s performances. I will let you know how well-received he is by this year’s Lolla enthusiasts.
Lady D’s performances are known to be soulful with her poetic spoken words. She is a world renowned DJ who has played for names like Billy Corgan, Queen Latifah, Dennis Rodman and now she will grace us with her presence performing during the Lolla weekend.
Words could not express how pumped I was to hear Ween was going to be rocking Chicago this summer at Lollapalooza. This 80’s alternative rock group is best known for hits like “Hey Fat Boy” or one of my all time fav’s “Push Th’ Little Daisies”. I am super stoked to rock out with Ween this summer. August can’t come fast enough!
Check out the full Lolla lineup and come celebrate Lolla’s 20th Birthday!
